There are wonders around every corner. This is why photography is so appealing to so many people. You have only to look and fascinating subjects will present themselves. Perhaps a flower attracts your attention. Or a bird, cloud, rainbow. Snap the shutter and it is yours to look at whenever you please.
My passion has always been architecture. I frequently stop to take photographs of buildings while I walk around. A small camera is always with me for such moments. Hurrying through the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt area of Berlin, I was on my way to a restaurant when I saw this imposing doorway. The night light and shadows; artificial illumination; marvelous mix of stone and ornamental metal; and the see-through quality of the scene immediately captured me. I paused to take several shots that will be reminders of a lovely evening in an alluring city.
